      No good!!! I have bought the heavy duty command strips for outdoor use and they still fall off the door in about a month

    I'd mount it first on a wooden plaque (available in all craft stores and paint color of your choice) then I'd mount it on an old wooden crate or planter or something in the style of your home; and place that next to the front door! lots of ideas on pinterest.

    Industrial strength Velcro. I used it to hang a welcome slate onto rough sawn vinyl siding and it has not budged in 10 years!

    why not mount it on a backbooard and put on a separate post. Therefore not attaching it to your property at all.

    Ace hardware sells siding hangers for just this purpose. They slide in between the siding rows.

      Thanks there is no space between the siding. I don't think I could use them.

    Use heavy duty command strips! That's what we used to hang a monogram on our brick so we didn't have to drill into it.

      Dont work. The heavy duty ones fall off the door just like the regular ones worthless I’ve broken 2 door plaques because they fell off the door

    They make clear command hooks

    I bought some that would hold up to 10 pounds. Held my wreath all winter. Of course I live in Georgia

    Some people put a rope on the plaque, and hang it from the mailbox, porch light, trellis or post.

    Command Hooks now sell something called picture hanging strips (NOT poster hanging strips). I have used them to hang a gallery wall full of framed photos. Some of the frames are matted double and triple pictures. The Command Strips have never failed. You do have to clean your siding and the back of the plague. I used rubbing alcohol, then let it dry completely. Follow the directions on the package for set times, etc. I love this product! They are somewhat like plastic Velcro. You can even level the item.

    You should use the screws that came with your address plaque. It's not something that you will be moving frequently, if at all. And if you do move it, a tiny bit of wood putty would take care of the holes.

    Can you put it on your door, mailbox, house trim?

    a nother suggestion you can try is go to your normal hobby supply store and get a piece of wood shaped to your liking and mount it to that and then add it to your home siding with your choice of fasteners.

    I don't understand the problem here. The address is permanent so why would you consider ever removing it? Consider it part of the expense of living in a new home. Leave it in place when you leave.

      Command strips DO NOT WORK. I have hung wooden plaques on my metal door with command strips and each time they only last about 3 to 4 weeks and then they fall off the door and break my plaques that hit the ground

    Thanks for all the great suggestions!

    There are hooks made for outdoors that stick on and are removeable when you pull a tab on the bottom of the hook. Don't know what the brand name is but any national hardware store (Lowe's, Ace, even WalMart...) should have them.

    There are alternative ways of displaying an address plaque that don't need to adhere to your home - might want to explore Pinterest for diy ideas.

    You could use two sided tape. Or what I use is the commercial tape were you would put one piece on your house and the other piece would go on your house address back . You can always pull them down if need be. The weather doesn't seem to bother it. An it holds real good. It is the Velcro tape. It can be used on any type siding. Even on brick or concret.

    You could attach it to a rock in your front yard,or mount it to a wooden post and place in your front yard(call dig safe first,before digging a hole).

    I had similar dilemma. If you have stairs up to your entrance, try fitting it on the kick plate. It is easily seem from the street too.
